How much was this set? Does it have a 35MM socket included?

I keep meaning to buy a 3/4" set, my 1/2" doesn't quite have the reach of everything I end up doing especially drive shafts.

I've been saving recently so I've not been able to participate. I may have to pick something up soon to stop the cravings.

Despite very clear and concise instructions from SWMBO that no further diving kit was to be purchased;



A 65KG lift bag despite never having needed to lift anything bigger than my camera and already owning a 25Kg bag.



And a new reel to avoid swapping a simple clip.

Add to that a new cylinder rigging kit, leg pouch and strobe just because I had my card out....

Took the wife to the local outlet place to change something she'd bought, called into the Bose store for a nosey.
Sound link mini 40 quid off for a refurbed one with 2 years warranty.
Be rude not to!
It fills the gap created when I bought the sonos play 1 last month instead of the portable Bluetooth speaker I set out to buy.

So I was scrolling through Facebook and saw a minute long video comparing a GoPro with and without an external mic, which had sort of been in my mind. I was a fiver off the free postage, so now waiting for this lot to turn up hehe



I've only used the camera about 2 or 3 times in the 6 months I've had it!
